    [Adster] then i had someoen give me a lecture for 2 hrs abotu intel being better
    [fkdup74] oh fuck that
    [fkdup74] get em in here
    [Adster] also says my xp 1800 is just as powerful as 64
    [Adster] said amd 54 is shithouse
    [fkdup74] let em try to tell me that shit >
    [Adster] *64
    [fkdup74] but anyway fuck intel
    [fkdup74] what happened?
    [Adster] i fucked the new motherboard and graphics card wasted 1200 bucks
    [fkdup74] s3end em back
    [Adster] no point its pyhsical damge
    [Adster] it wont eb under warranty
    [Adster] im done with computers
    [fkdup74] how physical was the damage?
    [Adster] once I fucking work out how to get teh front panel back in this mobo im staying with this
    [Adster] mafuckto
    [Adster] burnt out
    [fkdup74] so?
    [fkdup74] i fried a memory stick from shorting wires in my case, sent it back, got a new one
    [fkdup74] heheh
    [Adster] im fine right now I cant get teh fucking right speaker to go
    [Adster] think thisw guy almost talking me into intel
    [Adster] the fans on CPU AMD 64 are shithouse hes right
    [fkdup74] blah
    [fkdup74] i put up with a "talking to" from a shop owner once about intel vs amd
    [fkdup74] i almost bitch slapped him
    [fkdup74] lol
    [Adster] this is a guy mind you who used to say intel were shithouse and was a amd boy
    [fkdup74] RMA the damned parts
    [fkdup74] cant hurt to try
    [fkdup74] cuz if theyre fried they arent gonna do you any good
    [fkdup74] just wasted money
    [fkdup74] so it cant hurt to try to get em rplaced
    [Adster] now next problem is how the fuck i get teh USB cables into teh front panel of this mobo
    [Adster] and i think the power lights are fucked up
    [Adster] the organge lights arnt working when teh HD is thinking
    [Adster] cant be fucked
    [Adster] i was told they will be able to see it a mile away that it was my doing
    [fkdup74] said who?
    [fkdup74] the intel boy?
    [Adster] 0the guiys been building and test PCs for years he does know what hes talking about
    [Adster] he does tests and shit for magazines sites ect
    [fkdup74] i've built and fixed a few myself
    [Adster] only thing I can get warranty on is the ram hehe
    [Adster] how many have you fucked in the past ;p
    [fkdup74] i'm no expert by any means, and anyone who says thwey are are probably full of shit, but anyway....
    [fkdup74] you have a choice of: a. take the loss, or b. try to RMA the parts
    [fkdup74] thats a heavy loss to take w/o at least givin it a chance that you may get replacements
    [fkdup74] that other bitch just wants to get you onto the intel bandwagon
    [fkdup74] by saying "oh fuck it they'll know dont even try"
    [fkdup74] wtf kinda shit is that?
    [fkdup74] if i was down 1200 bucks on fried parts.....
    [fkdup74] i'd at least look at trying to RMA them
    [fkdup74] then if you decide that you dont want to go ahead with the system, you at least have good parts to sell off
    [fkdup74] maybe not at full retail, but you at least minimizee your loss
    [Adster] told me the gigabyte board was shithouse too lol
    [fkdup74] ok
    [fkdup74] i gotta ask
    [Adster] anyway i need to find a site that tells me where and how to fuck to plug int eh USB front connectors
    [fkdup74] who was this dumb ass?
    [Adster] and lighst lol
    [fkdup74] google for your mobo
    [fkdup74] should find a manual online
    [fkdup74] will give you the pin config
    [Adster] bah i got the manual tells me nothing
    [fkdup74] and you can then check it
    [Adster] my case has dat-1 data-2 and all sorts of shit
    [fkdup74] i have never had a mobo manual NOT give me pin configs o_O
    [Adster] and it was plugged in before cant remember
    [fkdup74] its standard fucking practice
    [Adster] it does but not what my USB connectors are labeled it as
    [fkdup74] anyway......i'm having a few cups of coffee before work.......you have time to tell me exactly what happened
    [fkdup74]
    [Adster] didnt have it bolted in so blah boot up makes a bad sound and blah burnign smell the end mafuckto 1200
    [fkdup74] ok
    [fkdup74] but you wont tell the mobo ppl that you didnt have it bolted
    [fkdup74] you just tell em it fried
    [fkdup74] and that you want it replaced
    [fkdup74]
    [Adster] too dodgy
    [fkdup74] no
    [fkdup74] damnit
    [fkdup74] dont fucking give up cuz one bitch says its hopeless

    [fkdup74] i'll lube his ass
    [fkdup74] >
    [fkdup74] its easy for some dickwad to say give it up, especially when hes not the one taking a 1200 dollar loss
    [Adster] hes a professional deals with 2000 of theae caes everyday
    [fkdup74] hes a dick
    [fkdup74] pure & simple
    [fkdup74]
    [Adster] ohh yeah anothe rthing
    [Adster] he said PCI express are shithouse forgot abotu them they wil be worht $1 next year
    [Adster] stick with AGP they kick the shit out of them
    [fkdup74] ok
    [Adster] heeh teh graphics card would cost 250 bucks to fix hehe
    [fkdup74] hes definately a dumbass now
    [fkdup74] pci-e has double the bandwidth of agp
    [Adster] so im spose to listen to a guy called fkdup in america as aposed too a guy i know who has worked with POCs for over 10 years

    What exactly happened here?
    Perhaps you could provide a coherent precis.

    Did poor Ad kill parts through mishandling or can he just not figure out how to connect them properly?

    he fired up the mobo w/o bolting it down,
    my guess is it was resting on the standoffs, and shorted
    like, possibly a circuit touched the standoff...
    that's how it seems to have happened, cant say, as Ad has not responded...

    OK, if that's what happened (kinda what I gathered too, actually) then why should he RMA the stuff?
    The product wasn't defective, the buyer was.
    That sort of irresponsible use of the RMA process costs us all money in the end, after all, someone is going to pay for the mistake and it sure won't be the manufacturer...they'll just up the price to cover the losses.

    I've actually had customers who were extremely pissed that I wouldn't replace a part that they obviously screwed up...a common error is the screwdriver slipping whilst trying to lever on a socketA heatsink.
    One guy tried to RMA a motherboard that his cat puked on (how THAT happened I have no idea).
    He brought it in with vomit still on it and was highly irate when we told him to fuck off.

    It's one thing to get a defective part and another altogether to weasle out of reponsibility for your own mistakes.

    LMAO! that's a classic!
    now that's something I would never try though, it's just rediculous

    and yeah, I see and believe your point about the misuse of the RMA process,
    there's no denying it, same as insurance fraud, tax fraud, etc. it screws everyone else

    I think I took such an adamant stand because it was an intel fanboy,
    saying it was absolutely hopeless, fuck AMD and go intel, etc. etc. blah blah

    plus theres still the off chance that nothing touched and it was just a DOA...maybe...
